View Full Version : Rockport mining town

This is a map of a small mining town and its surroundings. Started as a skill refreshing project and many original ideas got changed on the way. Iím kinda glad I didnít scrap it after the few first trials (I almost did).

Programs used: Geocontrol2 (for the original heightmap) and Photoshop for the rest.

Awesome landscape and rendered of the town. We feel like flying over!

Though I usually prefer a ''cleaner'' style, I think you did a very good job :)

Love it, gives great detail for saying "you are here" to players, LOL. I always liked that when GM'n.

Looks great pasis! Looks like an interesting place to make a living (without potential banditry and accidents of course). :)

This is really great. A lot of times maps with photo-real textures feel fake and put together to me but this really seems like an aerial view. Really the only thing I'm not a fan of is your font selection.

Here is the map without any texts for the ones who prefer it that way.

Well you made me look up GeoControl 2 and may consider a purchase, as I'm always looking for a better way to generate mountains and terrain with depth. I just downloaded the free version to see how it works out.

This looks awesome! I think that the thing that I like about it the most is that the town isn't positioned centrally in the image. Most of the time (especially on my maps) people seem to put the pertinent information in the middle of the page but I think that I'm going to start taking a leaf out of your book from now on and offsetting it a little.
